What drew you to the script of Pyaar Impossible?
I got a warm, fuzzy feeling when I read the script. I felt it was a story that had to be told.
How much do you identify with your character, Alisha?
We’re quite similar. Alisha is fun-loving, independent and vivacious like me; but unlike her, I’m majorly into technology and gadgets.
How do you make a role like this different?
In every role I play, I try to make the character lovable enough for the viewer to take home. That’s what I’ve tried to do here as well.
Was working with the one-animated-film-old Jugal Hansraj tough?
Jugal was very clear about how he wanted to shoot, about shot break-ups etc. Both Uday (Chopra) and Jugal had a take on how Alisha’s (my) character should be shot.
What was the shoot like?
This film was a stress-buster. I’d been doing serious, intense roles and needed a
lighthearted film. I had a great time.
Your expectations from this film?
Like always, I want people to watch the film and like it.
What is the USP of Pyaar Impossible?
It’s something I haven’t done before. A different, pleasant film for me.
What has changed about Priyanka Chopra since she became a celebrity?
I’ve had more experience, so I’ve become more careful. I’ve become more protective about my family, but besides that, not much.
As a young actor in the industry, are you pushing your creative boundaries?
Yes, with every film. And I do so consciously.
What brings out your best performance?
Cooperative co-stars, co-stars who are as interested in a scene as you are...spontaneity, when it comes from both actors, raises a scene to a new level.
